Retired General to Tinubu: Let your appointments reflect fairness

A retired Major-General of the Nigerian Army and former acting Military Governor of the defunct South-Eastern State, Dr Oluyemi Bajowa, has passionately appealed to the President Elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, to ensure his appointment reflects the diversity of the country.

Gen Bajowa noted that equity and fairness in his administration would further safeguard the peace and unity of the nation. He said this during the opening of the 10th Synod of the Diocese on the Coast at Ebenezer Anglican Cathedral, Ilutitun in Okitipupa, Ondo state.

According to him ” as the nation embarks on building a new Nigeria, principles of fairness, equity, justice, and the rule of law, should reign supreme and be prioritized. “Nigeria is presently engulfed with the problems of decadent and vices of moral compass, corruption, unemployment, poverty, hunger, and insecurity, which is compounded by a defective unitary constitution. These challenges require God’s intervention.

“God Who hears, cares, and divinely intervened to save all of us during the Covid-19 pandemic; the same God, with our ardent prayers, will continue to care for us, as the nation now embarks on building a new Nigeria, in which the principles of fairness, equity, justice, and the rule of law, should reign supreme. “Nigeria is presently engulfed with the problems of decadent and vices of moral compass, corruption, unemployment, poverty, hunger, and insecurity, which is compounded by a defective unitary constitution.”

Bajowa explained that the selection of the theme of the Synod, “The God who hears, cares and intervenes” is timely, apt and divinely inspired. The retired General commended the Bishop of the Diocese on the Coast, Rt Revd Oluseyi Pirisola for his visionary and purposeful leadership, exemplified in his cerebral, hardworking, motivating, and endearing humility.

Bajowa said, “Personally, I feel highly impressed with the tremendous development of evangelism, Christian fellowship, and the sense of belonging that existed in the Diocese on the Coast since you took over episcopal responsibilities of the Anglican Diocese on the Coast.  He noted that ” The innovative and fresh ideas introduced in your era thus far had made Christian religion more appealing to the younger generation, for service in the Lord vineyard.”

May 29: Tinubu’s enemies’ll labour in vain — APC chieftain

MEMBERS of the Mainland Independent Group, MIG, a socio-political pressure group, based in Lagos State, have assured Nigerians that the President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, will surely be inaugurated as the next president of Nigeria on May 29, 2023.

Speaking on behalf of the MIG, during a prayer session for the president-elect, organised by the group, Ibrahim Megida lampooned those clamouring for interim government, describing them as clowns who deserve to be pitied. Megida, a Lagos-based APC chieftain, who co-ordinates the group, also dismissed moves to stop him at the court, as an exercise in futility.

Megida said Tinubu’s victory had come solely from God and not the making of any man adding that “this is why the enemies of progress and trouble mongers, calling for Interim Government should shut up. They shall labour in vain and will never succeed, as Asiwaju’s presidency is an appointment with destiny and not the work of any man.”
Apart from the president-elect, prayers were also rendered for Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State, Messrs Tunji Bello, Ibrahim Odunboni, Monsuru Alao and APC members across the country.
